Valentines and Romance is in the Air

I had a great bunch of girls over this afternoon for a Valentines inspired Stamp-a-stack… We had fun making the following projects to the soundtrack of a bit of Shaggy here, a bit of Justin Timberlake there – you get the picture!

The first project was a lollipop card – I saw this lollipop idea created with flowers on one of my blog travels but for the life of me can’t track it down – so if you are reading this sorry! But thanks for the inspiration!

The large hearts were cut using my Fiskars cutting system, and the small heart was first stamped with two step stamping from Simply Said and then punched with SU’s Full Heart Punch. I really wowed the girls with my Stamp-a-majig for this two step stamping – it really never fails to position the stamps JUST RIGHT! The lollipop stick was created with a black drinking straw.

The I LOVE YOU sentiment is from the Outlined for Fun stampset,  I really like this layout – you could easily adapt this for little girl birthday cards is fin bright colours.

The second project was  a pocket card with a slide out piece – perfect for writing a private  love note to that special person in your life!


Ruby Red cardstock, a little Raspberry Tart DSP, a heart stamp from Simply Said, and Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon creates this cute slide out pocket. 

The Valentines sentiment is from the hostess set Occasions for All and the tag to help you slide out the insert card is punched using the Large Tag Punch.  Janie varied the DSP to show the gorgeous Kiwi Kiss colours and changed the sentiment up for another occasion and this looked great too!

For project number 3 we made a square patchwork card:

We started with a black base and added Ruby Red squares topped with the many patterns from the Raspberry Tart DSP.  One of the squares is folded down and secured with a brad to show the cute Kiwi Kiss colour from underneath. 

The stamp used is from Fun and Fast Notes and is coloured in using Stampin’ Pastels and Blender Pens.  Vanessa actually chose the Together Forever stamp with a Wedding cake for a friend’s upcoming wedding which looked fantastic!

And finally for the 3D project – some of you may have seen it previously as I couldn’t resist entering it into the Just-Add-Ink, Just Add Hearts Challenge – but here it is again:

This Treat Basket was created using the Thank You box template from the SU demonstrator website – I added an elegant handle and the sentiment at the back of the basket to give it more substance (and to help hold in the Ferrero Rochere for my hubby)

Again it is Ruby Red Card with Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip Accents – a colour combo inspired by Kerry High at our “A Klass Act” Team Day last week.  The heart is stamped in versa marke and then embossed using gold embossing powder and a heat gun. And of course we can’t forget my favourite So Swirly Wheel!

If you would like to get your hands on this template why not drop me an email?

So there you have it – the four projects featured at my Valentines Stamp-a-stack. Thanks for dropping by, and if you are interested in coming along to one of My Easter Classes, check out the Upcoming Classes page for a sneak peek of the projects we will be making.  I have one spot left on the 7th of March and a few still available for the 14th of March.

Happy Crafting!
